The Wrestling Booking Sheet

At the conclusion of this issue we have the spoilers for Thursday's
edition of Smackdown; as always, if you would rather be surprised, be
sure to skip that section…

Reported by Al Isaacs at:
Apparently DOA will be returning to ECW; the identical twins were
formerly in ECW under their real names of Ron & Don Harris. Although I
really don't see an upside here, I assume Paul Heyman sees something he
can work with.

I just finished reading an Article that should have started with
"Once upon a time," and ended with "And they all lived happily ever
after." That would have been the appropriate beginning and ending
because it sure was a fairy tale. It contained the response written to
who someone the author deemed a "WWF Mark." That is the term used by
virtually every one of WCW's Defenders Of The Faith. They lump most WWF
fans in a group they classify as
"non-fans," "Johnny-Come-Lately's," and "Austin Lovers." At the same
time, they claim they are "real" wrestling fans and want nothing more
than to see to see hour long matches between their heroes, like Benoit
and Malenko.

The Defenders completely ignore that the product the WWF provides is
what most people want to see. A perfect example is Mankind's "This Is
Your Life" tribute to The Rock this past Monday on RAW, which garnered
the highest rating ever for a wrestling show's quarter hour (8.6),
while NITRO scored less than a 2.0 (1.6) for the same time period. If
you look at the prior and post quarter-hours, you can readily see that
NITRO dropped and then went back up. You don't have to be a rocket
scientist, or even one of the geniuses that live in
Ames, Iowa, to see
that many NITRO fans left to watch the segment and returned after it
was over. Seems like a lot of NITRO fans enjoy Sports Entertainment
also, no matter what The Defenders say.

Getting back to our junior Aesop, he found good in almost everything on
NITRO. He thinks the viewers were interested in such things as The
Pussy Cat's match, the return of Slick Ric Junior, aka David Flehr. He
found virtually no faults in NITRO
and very little good in RAW. This was his idea of a balanced view.
Anyone that wanted to could go through either show match-by-match,
promo-by-promo and come out with any conclusion they wanted to. I am
the first to call anything
involving Mideon, Visera and Steve Blackman a waste, but I think I
would have to say the same about anything involving The Pussy Cat,
Flexy Lexy (who has now dropped his name and hiding under the full time
alias of The Total Package), Konnan, etc.

This budding fable writer falls in with the group the seems to think
every WWF fan is either new, under 12, a male with over active
hormones, or some combination of them. They totally disregard reality,
but I guess if you are writing a fable, that's how its done. They
continue to cite the WWF's use of T&A, while ignoring the fact that the
worst cases of "T" were done weekly by
Savage's Bimbo's. They showed more "T" then you might see anywhere,
short of going to a Gentleman's Club.

Blast the WWF if you want, but remember that first, last and
foremost, that wrestling is a business, and businesses exist to make
money. Last I looked, not a single wrestling Federation was listed as
a Charity. Higher attendance means more revenue, higher TV ratings mean
more revenue, more merchandise sales mean higher revenues, etc. At this
time, the WWF is giving the majority
of the fans what they want to see. Nothing lasts forever. When tastes
change, maybe what WCW provides will be on top. Rather than rehashing
the same old tired and worn out arguments and telling the world about
the evils of the WWF, enjoy what you watch. Don't label any fan a
"Mark" because he prefers one over the other(s) and don't give the Phil
Mushnick's of the world
ammunition they can use to further their agenda of having wrestling
taken off TV.

Remember that WCW's new Bean Counter In Charge himself said he liked
and watched RAW. That may be a clue in which direction WCW will be

On a closing note, I recently read another Article by a most
respected columnist again touting Slick Ric for the job of WCW
President. He almost seems to be on a crusade. I also read a very well
written rebuttal, by one of The Eight Known WCW Fans. I said it before
and I'll say it again: Selecting a wrestler (or an
ex-wrestler) is the wrong thing to do. What is needed is someone with a
fresh outlook, with no preconceived notions. Many companies on their
last legs, and although WCW is far from that, select a "Turnaround
Specialist" for the job.

They are people who will make the painful choices necessary to
restore a floundering company. WCW is floundering and needs such a
Chief Executive. I want nothing more than to see a healthy and vibrant
WCW. We, the fans have the most to gain from it.

First we saw the clip of Mankind with the Rock from RAW

Sunday Night Heat:
Vicsera d. Chaz after the ref refused to count Chaz's pinfall attempts
(I guess the referee was thinking Chaz hit Marianna).

Al Snow d. Mideon in a Hardcore title match after rolling a bowling
ball into Mideon's crotch.

Godfather d. Gangrel by DQ

Smackdown begins…

Road Dogg, wearing a Mr. Ass T-Shirt, went againstY2J. The match ended
when The Holly's (doing commentary) came in and powerbomed Road Dogg
onto a table.

Mankind came out to confront Val about Rocko. Val acted like he didn't
know what he was talking about until Mankind showed
G-TV to Val, who promised he would get Rocko back.

Vince McMahon is shown in the back telling Triple H that he is going
to defend the title against the Bulldog, with The Rock as the ref. The
Rock was asked about his involvement in the match.

Edge and Christian d. The New Brood after Christian superplexed Jeff
Hardy off of Edge's shoulders. Terri came out to do commentary.

Droz and
Prince Albert come out to do commentary during The Big Show
vs. D-Lo Brown match. D-lo hit the Low Down but Big Show kicked out.
Prince Albert got on the top rope to do a dropkick but was caught by
the big hand of the Big Show, which Albert got away from. D-lo was then
attacked by Droz. Mark Henry came out to saved D-lo. D-lo left the ring
upset. Mark stayed in the ring saying he has a problem. He's a
Sexaholic. He then said he's going to get professional help.

Shane was shown talking to Austin in the back.

Rock and Mankind were talking in the back and The Rock then told Mick
to go after Val and get Rocko back.

Test and Steph were in the back looking at "night apparel" when Droz
came up and took off his shirt and was wearing a dress!!! Steph seemed
to like it and Test did as well.

Next was a elimination tag match between the Acolytes/Dudleys/X-Pacand
Kane A fast past match that saw The Acolytes DQed after not listening
to the ref. That left the Dudleys with X-Pac and Kane. After a
Chokeslam, X-Pac and Kane won the match. The Acolytes came back and
beat down X-Pac and Kane.

Note:Buh-Buh was wearing The Rock's Rock n Sock jacket. In the back
Mankind asked Buh-Buh for the jacket, and Buh-Buh told Mick,he found it
in a trash can. Mankind vowed to get the jacket back.

The Hollys come out. Hardcore wanted to fight someone tonight, but
Crash wanted to fight that much more. Hardcore let him have the match
aginst Summo (a.k.a. FATU ), wearing a bright Sumo outfit. Fatu
dominated the match and hit a nasty version of Greetings From Ashbery
Park on Crash

Dotson (a security guy) was shown in the back talking to Terry Taylor
when Blackman attacked Dotson.

Jeff Jarrett came out with Miss Kitty with an ironing board and brooms
and told Chyna that she should be doing all of that type of stuff.
Debra came out, but not alone...she brought out all the women Jarrett
attacked, including Cindy Margolis. Though they surrounded the ring
Jarrett held them off, at least until Chyna came out and pushed Jarrett
to the outside. All the women started beating Jarrett with brooms &
plungers; Debra hit Jarrett with some type of tray.

Mankind came out to fight Buh-Buh for the jacket. Stevie Richards came
out in Mankind's corner. Val came out and sat with the King and Cole.
When the ref was distracted, Buh-Buh received the Stevie kick. Buh-Buh
ran out, leaving the jacket.

Next Val came in and said he respected Foley and wanted to give Rocko
back. Val put Rocko on and told Mick to close his eyes. When he did,Val
did the testicular claw on Mankind as Buh-Buh and D-Von tore the jacket
up. Val kept the hold on a long time and for the first time, left
hearing boo's.

Main Event: Bulldog vs. Triple H with The Rock as the referee. Rock
came out to a huge pop. Next The Bulldog came in and got into the
Rock's face; The rock knocked Bulldog out of the ring.

Triple H came out and beat on the Bulldog. Triple H had the Bulldog
pinned but the Rock didn't care. He did commentary most of the match
instead of doing his job. Finally Triple H got the Bulldog slammed,
and when the Rock started to count, he said it doesn't matter what the
count is and left for more commentary.

Aftera Pedigree The Rock didn't count and instead gave Triple H a DDT,
and the Bulldog a Rock Bottom. The People's Elbow followed and The
Rock took the belt with him. In the back, Triple H was looking for the
Rock and the Rock smacked Triple H with the belt; the Bulldog then
attacked The Rock and they went off camera.

Triple H got up and walked to his dressing room, but the door was
locked. When it opened Austin was inside and started to beat the hell
out of Triple H. After the show, Austin graced us with his presence and
drank near 15 beers while Triple H got the stunner 8 times.
